Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency

Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency

The residency program in Gynecology and Obstetrics at Baylor College of Medicine has a long history of preparing physicians for proficient practice in gynecology and obstetrics, and creating leaders in our field.

We train professionals who develop a comprehensive medical knowledge of the specialty, translate that into effective patient care, and communicate effectively with patients, and the health care team. We look for and create ‘lifelong learners,’ those who strive to improve their own practice, and effectively use system resources for patient benefit.

We assess resident training through a process of resident evaluation (peer, faculty, nurse, medical student, and patients), Semi-annual program director meetings and feedback from the Clinical Competency Committee. We are committed to maintaining a learning environment in which residents and faculty can improve their knowledge and skills and learn from each other. Residents are incorporated into the department's clinical, teaching, and research activities in a supportive fashion. Residents are also active participants of the yearly residency program education retreat which reviews the program as a whole to strengthen the training we provide at Baylor.
